Alfred 2 vs Launch Bar 6

Have been trying to compare these both apps since I got the macbook pro. Finally found a very detailed video to make an informed decision. This video by Todd Olthoff helped a lot to understand the major differences between the both.

After watching the video, I have decided to give both of these a try for a month to make the decision. Since I have already used Alfred for some time now, I am trying out Launchbar. It is quite good so far, uses probably a tad bit more memory than Alfred but it is hanging in there. I just bought the  Alfred App :).

What is your preferred launcher app?

Clear iMessage chat history on Mac

If you have been wondering on how to clear the chat history on iMessage like me, Here is a quick command that you can execute in the Terminal to clear the history.

rm -r ~/Library/Messages/chat.*

What the command does is basically delete all the files that are named chat in your messages folder in your library. The command should work in OS X Maverics. If it worked for you in anyother OS X version do let me know in the comments.

Analytics 3d

After reading my review of Analytics Pro, Richard from Codefrontiers sent me a promo code for trying their new app called Analytics3D. Below is a brief opinion of mine after using the app for the past week.

A very interesting app approach to view Google analytics data on you iphone or ipad. I must say the app is good. It adds a bit of spice to the monotonous apps that can just show Google Analytics data on your iDevice of choice. What I like about the app is that it has a gestures to navigate within categories. The location of visitors is my favorite feature. The bars on location view in a 3D is really cool. If you already are using an app for Google Analytics and you are interested to try something cool and a different app, this is the app for you.

As much as the app is cool, some functions/gestures aren’t obvious making it a bit confusing initially. Once you figure out it feels obvious. In all Analytics3D is a cool app, worth a try. Ideal for individuals who have blogs or personal sites and are not digging deep into their stats data, but just trying to get an overview of how their site is faring Its on the store for $2.99 and u can download from here
